Upon discovering a coded message in the self help book 6 Dynamic Laws for Success (In Life, Love & Money) which purportedly reveals the location of $2.4 million missing from a bank robbery gone bad, a demoralized ex-used car salesman sets out on a quest to find the money and remake himself in the process. However, he soon discovers he’s not the only one after the cash, and that the road to riches and self-improvement is littered with irate ex-wives, litigious fiancés, household calamities, accidental murders, and love at first sight.
Filmed in Idaho, 6 Dynamic Laws for Success in Life, Love & Money draws inspiration from the golden age of film noir, screwball comedies, and seminal self-improvement books like Think and Grow Rich and How to Win Friends and Influence People to weave its farcical tale. Shot in stunning black & white, the film celebrates classic cinema while offering a fresh, original comic noir.
Starring Travis Swartz, Jennifer Lafleur, Ross Partridge, Lisa King Hawkes & Sara Anne Lynch. Produced by Christian Lybrook & Gregory Bayne. Written & Directed by Gregory Bayne.

Ultimately, JENS PULVER | DRIVEN is a film about a universal human struggle, transcending loss, and overcoming hardship through the many fights we all share in our pursuit of greatness.

errance Dyer is a veteran of the war in Iraq, a self-proclaimed American Patriot and seasoned combat fighter, now living underground in the streets of Seattle, and fighting an equally hair-trigger battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Led by an acute sense of paranoia, Terrance becomes convinced that the federal government is setting him up as the fall guy in a soon-to-be terrorist attack on American soil, yet his reactions to the paranoia unmistakably parallel that of a would-be terrorist.
After finding connection with a young journalist looking to tell his story, Terrance sinks rapidly into a heightened sense of morality and betrayal leading him inevitably toward violence.
At once controversial and definitive, vehemently proactive, and overwhelmingly relevant in a political climate charged with uncertainties, Person of Interest gives voice to a disenfranchised generation of soldiers, while bravely prodding at the seams of homegrown terrorism in the United States.
Produced by Gregory Bayne & J. Reuben Appelman, Directed by Gregory Bayne, Written by J. Reuben Appelman, Cinematography by Gregory Bayne, Editing by Gregory Bayne & Jason Willford, Music by Christopher Sorensen, Starring J. Reuben Appelman, Nova Tydings & Stitch Marker.
